Cincinnati Reds
2024 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick by the Mariners in 2020, Phillips was traded to the Reds in 2022 as part of the Eugenio Suarez deal. Phillips began last season at Double-A Chattanooga, striking out nearly 40 percent of the batters he faced across 14 starts. His strikeouts fell while his walks spiked upon his promotion to Triple-A Louisville, but regardless the organization deemed him worthy of a late-season audition with the big club. The results were poor during his brief time in Cincinnati (6.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP over 20.2 innings), but he at least showed a respectable strikeout punch around all the walks and homers. While the right-hander has good velocity for a starter and his sweeper showed promise, he will likely need more time in the minors to refine his command and control. Phillips doesn't turn 23 years old until May. Read Past Outlooks

March 13, 2024
The Reds optioned Phillips to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Phillips has a 5:3 K:BB over six scoreless innings this spring but nonetheless finds himself sent to minor-league camp. The talented 22-year-old could still wind up making a decent number of starts for the Reds this season, but there are currently others ahead of him in the pecking order.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could be bullpen option
PCincinnati Reds  AAA
September 1, 2023
Phillips could join the big-league bullpen amid Cincinnati's playoff push, writes Joe Trezza of MLB.com.
ANALYSIS
Phillips' key appeal is generating a 9.7 K/9. Otherwise, the 22-year-old has struggled in Triple-A since ascending there midseason, posting a 4.69 ERA through 11 appearances. He's more likely to make his big-league debut in 2024.
